Happy Birthday, Samantha Hoopes

The latest rookie to be revealed is the lovely Samantha Hoopes, 23 today.
In this photo, and the others I've found online, she looks partway between Marisa Miller and Nina Agdal, which is nothing to complain about.

However, the rookie class, despite featuring twelve models, is looking pretty monochromatic. I would love to see a bit more racial variety, especially in the wake of last year, with its rookie class of four white chicks.

Of course, none of this takes away from Samantha up there, with her sexy half-smile. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of her!

As if in answer to that last sentence, Swim Daily just updated their photo so you can see all of Miss Hoopes's (Tori Praver!) one-piece.

Agreed about the disappointing monochrome nature of the rookies. Seems odd that in a year with 12 rookies, still waiting for one of color. Going thru the preview pics I believe one of the rookies-to-be is Dominican, but I hope there's more they have hidden. Can't imagine a 50th anniversary issue an only having Ariel, plus an athlete. They have to do better than that.
